There are so many different emotions that we have experienced during this whole process so far. Excitement, stress, anticipation, joy, frustration, peace, fear, love…the list could go on. One emotion, however, that we have felt time and time again is thankfulness.
You will hear a lot more specifically about who and what we are thankful for as the weeks come, but we just wanted to stop now before things get super crazy and just be honest for a minute. I don’t think any of us could have pictured what the response would look like that we have received from everyone. We have time and time again been overwhelmed with the words, encouragement, donations, texts, phone calls, likes on Instagram, shares on Facebook, emails and this list could continue too. We just want you to know that those things don’t go unnoticed and to be quite frank…they are needed. We need each of those things as we move forward and we are so thankful that when we announced to everyone what we were doing, that we didn’t hear crickets. Instead, we heard people cheering us on and that means the world!
When we decided to pursue The Mix House, it wasn’t because we wanted to get rich quick or make it big. To be honest, we hope those never happen. We decided to pursue The Mix House because we wanted to create a community. A place where people can feel at home. Where people can feel comfortable. A place where people can experience God. We wanted to create a community that encourages and uplifts, one that doesn’t tear each other down. It’s more than just coffee and sweet treats to us (but we do love those two things!). And in some ways, we feel like we are already doing just that!
Thank you, for being there for us. Thank you for joining in and supporting us. Thank you for becoming a part of our community. Thank you for telling your friends about us and for backing us on Kickstarter. Can we just talk about something really quick?? We’ve raised almost $5,000 in just a few short weeks. Whether we hit our goal or not…that’s amazing! We are SO THANKFUL for those who have given. No matter what happens over these next 6 days, we just want people to know that we are thankful. We are thankful for each and every one of you. And we are thankful to the Lord for all that He is going to do through this crazy little dream.
Now, let’s make this happen! We’ve got less than a week and $5,000 more to go! We’re thankful, but still determined! We’re not giving up and you shouldn’t either! Join in now and help us see this come to life! We can do this! Back us on Kickstarter here!
Mix on, Mixers!
